✨✧ Jacques Brel, Mort Shuman, Elly Stone, Joe MasiellJacques Brel Is Alive & Well & Living In Paris – Original Film Soundtrack ... LP
Atlantic, 1974. Near Mint- 2LP Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The film soundtrack version of this famous 60s musical, which was based around the sounds of Belgian singer Jacques Brel. The film version shares many similarities to the broadway one – translations by Eric Blau and Mort Shuman, vocals by Shuman and Elly Stone – but the overall sound is quite different, as the versions presented here are more subtle, less campy, possibly due to the freer range of expression allowed to the actors on a film soundstage. Plus, this version also includes a few of Brel's best songs that were left out of the original show – making for a total of 26 titles that include "The Bulls", "Sons Of", "The Desperate Ones", "Amsterdam", "The Statue", "Brussels", "Funeral Tango", "Bachelors Dance", "Carousel", and "Next". If you want Brel in English, this may well be the best way to get it – as nearly all other English language versions of his work (by Scott Walker, Marc Almond, and others) came from these translations.

Michel PolnareffLipstick – Original Soundtrack ... LP
Atlantic, 1976. Very Good+ ... $8.99
Pretty groovy stuff – even if it is a big shift for Polnareff! Polnareff began his career as a cool French popster – singing in a style that mixed baroque 60s arrangements with the intimacy of folk. Here, though, he's gone disco/electronic – and has composed four cool long tracks that mix together weird melodies, strange keyboards, and some occasional disco grooves. "Lipstick" is the club cut here, and it's heard stretched out with lots of other passages in the "Lipstick Montage", which was done by Polnareff and Jimmie Haskell. Side two features "The Rapist" and "Ballet", both long instrumental electronic numbers – with a very Tangerine Dream-ish feel. (Soundtracks, French) LP, Vinyl record album
(Cover has a cutout hole and light wear.)
